Joseph Silverstein (b1932)

Hailed by colleagues as a "complete musician" in a career already spanning half a century, Joseph Silverstein has been called one of the most accomplished and versatile American violinists of his generation. Born in Detroit in 1932, he went to the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, where his teachers included Veda Reynolds and Efrem Zimbalist. Later he worked with Mischa Mischakoff, the concertmaster of Toscanini's NBC Symphony Orchestra.

After graduating from Curtis in 1950, Silverstein became a member of the Houston Symphony, and he joined the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1955 as its youngest member. In 1959 he won the silver medal at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, and the following year he was awarded the prestigious Naumburg Prize. He was named the Boston Symphony's concertmaster in 1962, and he held that position for twenty-two years, often appearing with the orchestra as a soloist and, since 1971, serving as assistant conductor. In 1964 he founded and became music director of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players.
